    Just got the old web page that I used to have up back up and running and revamped. Many thanks to P95Carry for the help in getting the site up and running. He is a kind old wizard. You can find the link to the checkering here.
    This was all done with the cheapie Brownells checkering took that I had before. All the checkering that I do now is on the bigger pro Marvel jig and there is no comparison. I have a 1911 in the shop right now that is due for some checkering and perhaps I will take some photos and update the web site with a how to using the better jig.
    There will also be a section on stippling coming soon.

    Some dexterity and patience and you get a very nice job !! I've done all my guns front and back but with flat top checkering since it's easier on the clothing.
